Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Paris Rail Day Trip from London submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We were pleasantly surprised to see our former tour guide, Sammy, greeting us again at the train terminal!
We booked this same tour two years ago and had a wonderful experience…Sammy did not disappoint !
He knew how to get us in without the long queue lines at the Eiffel Tower and never had to wait for a bus!
Our only disappointment was not knowing that the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays (when we happened to go)
Wish we knew that ahead of time. LOVE LOVE LOVE Sammy….ask for him!
It was great getting to Paris within 2 hours and we were glad we took the tour, but - the day was very rushed. Viator had us arrive way too early at the train station. We could have gotten up an hour later that morning. Upon arriving in Paris we did not have a dedicated coach waiting for us but rather hopped on and off different buses. First one was very smelly with smoke. The audio tours were lacking. The guide Sammy had great energy and was very personable but could have given more narrative as we went through the city. (You'll know if Sammy is your guide - look for the electric blue sneakers- and he uses them - he is very quick : ) ). We drove up the Champs Elysees and went up to the 2nd level on the Eiffel Tower - fantastic views. Very disappointed the tour did not include an hour in the Lourve (we just went downstairs in the shopping area). The restaraunt we were brought to for lunch was nice and had a view of the Eiffel Tower which was a block away. We did have a great time at Notre Dame and were able to tour the cathedral for about 35 minutes. Then a boat ride up the Seinne - beautiful views but it was raining - no one could help that. We ended the day at a posh designer indoor mall but we would have preferred more time at the Lourve and then right to the train station. All in all we were happy to take the guided option as we would not have been able to get around as quickly on our own. It was fun driving down the Paris streets in the double decker bus and we were happy to have added a day in France to our London trip.Reviewed by: Marilyn M, March 2014

We waited 2 hours for tour guide to get tickets to board train. All we really got to do is get on hop on hop off bus and wait for bus very.. disappointing No museum or tours our guide even said for us to complain.Don't do this tour! We wasted time and money. Museums were closed after waiting in lineReviewed by: Alita J, April 2014
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE TRIP!! We had two true adults and two 14 year olds. Received train tickets on the morning of tour and we were SEPARATED on different coaches. How would any parent feel being separated from her 14 year old in a different country? I was beyond furious. Our tour guy stayed on the phone more then he explain anything to us and left us every chance he had. He only had the 4 of us on the tour and we did not even get to tour the Notre Dame which was on our schedule to do. I only have a side view picture of it. Left us off for shopping and was LATE coming back. Get back to the train and we were SEPARATED again on three different coaches!!!!Reviewed by: Melissa P, January 2014
